Credit Union Trust adds new CU partners

FARMINGTON HILLS, MI (January 4, 2022) — Credit Union Trust announced that they have added two new Credit Union partners, bringing the total roster of Credit Unions owners and partners offering trust and estate services to their members to nine. The two new partners are:

  • Astera Credit Union, headquartered in Lansing, Michigan. Effective November 1, 2021
  • Gerber Federal Credit Union, headquartered in Fremont, Michigan. Effective December 1, 2021.

As Credit Union Trust partners, the Credit Unions are now able to offer their members valuable trust and estate services that were not formerly available through Credit Unions.

“This was a real gap for our members,” said John P. Buckley, Jr., President & CEO of Gerber Federal Credit Union, located in Fremont, Michigan. “Banks have gotten out of the business for many asset levels, and most people don’t have the time or knowledge to manage this on their own. We are very happy to have a partnership with Credit Union Trust—and great confidence that our members will be taken care of appropriately.”

“We are pleased to partner with Credit Union Trust to provide our members with trust and estate services that we did not offer,” said Martin Carter, President & CEO of Astera Credit Union, headquartered in Lansing, Michigan. “I am confident that the additional services this partnership offers will assist greatly in strengthening the bond we have with our members and support our brand identity of being a single point provider of financial services to those we serve.”

“We appreciate the vision of those who are partnering with us—understanding how these valuable services can be life-changing for members and their families—and look forward to adding more credit unions to the family in 2022,” said Jordan Summers, Credit Union Trust’s President and CEO. “We are very aware of the numerous priorities credit unions have to attend to, so we are well prepared to bring  the tools and the team to the table, making it easier for our services to be folded into their operation and easily offered to their members.”
